    can anyone tell my why manufacturers dont put sleeving around the cables?
    it looks better, better airflow...actually, I dont see any downsides only that the price may go up by 5 or something?

    besides, all rounded cables already have sleeving...GIMME A PSU WITH IT TOO

    The machines that currently make the cables, and attaches the plugs aren't designed to accomodate sleeves, and so to change them would be a huge initial cost. Not to mention, 99% of computers get opened once ever two years.

    This is something that will eventually happen, as more and more of the 'flashy PC' market opens up...

    There are many PSU's that do come with it as a standard though, especially those aimed for the enthusiast market. Most PSU's that dont have sleeving are cheaper ones or those put into OEM comps that mostly, as zeradul said, are opened once every two years. Other cables probably wouldnt be cost effective, and also the fact that if you want to group them together, there's too many different arrangements to offer. : peace2: Mista K6
